Being a gadget enthusiast (nerd) that I am, she knew that I was very excited by the announcement and concept of Android Wear, an on-wrist extension of your Android phone's screen for glanceable notifications, timely information, and assistance. She also knew that I was into the design of the very first Moto360, in particular. So she decided to surprise me on my birthday by getting me one (I'm a very lucky guy). I was very happy to wear my shiny new Moto360 every d…
